for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side of the city. the governor said it's a situation they will have to monitor and first thing in the morning at first light respond to and try to get those people out. not far from here just a couple blocks, one of the city's last resort shelters a guard unit went in there and pulled those people out and took them to atlantic city high school. so the shelters that were kept if place drawing criticism. chris christie's statement was there shouldn't have been shelters open here on the island. the winds are still coming ashore here. and we really won't know what kind of damage has taken place inside the city proper. i'm chris kato reporting for wcau. >> what he was explaining was cutting out of some of the time because we have a live shot in the middle of the storm about the controversy over those shelters. the the contrast is between the
-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get r
along the shore. and this is really what local officials are worried about. the high tide and the combination of this long duration of the storm that they are expecting. they are expecting about 36 hours for hurricane sandy to really come through this area and just to show you over here as well, they have evacuated this entire area of downtown ocean city. and that evacuation deadline is fast approaching. we have seen people flee town all day long. and they have opened up local shelters in this county where we are hearing about 40 people resorted to shelters already. clearly, they have been preparing for this and also have learned from last year's hurricane irene. here's the local mayor. all right, well, we talked to the local mayor earlier and they are prepared under 24-hour operations here trying to keep the lines of communication open with residents here who chose not to evacuate as well as keeping up-to-date with everything going on in terms of emergency responses and any type of damage that may come because of hurricane sandy, don and chad. >> sandy, standby. we have c
, show leadership and get on the local news without looking craven or opportunistic came with its own share of problems. quote, the last-minute nature of the call for donations left some in the campaign concerned that they would end with an empty truck. so the night before the event campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in. with only 6 days until the presidential election what's clear is that every granola and every bear hug counts. >>> ben, your libelus -- >> did you call a digital publication a rag. >> we'll take it. >> talk about this story. there is -- there's some, look, to be honest political optics, stage managing is something everybody does on both sides of the aisle. this was an opportunity for romney to not look opportunistic and they focused heavily on the optics. your assessment of mitt romney's position these days. >> i mean i think his position is impossible. when you're running a political campaign there is nothing you can do that is not going to be inter

with the locals to turn off electricity to clear the trees out of the streets and first get everything running again. if they don't have electricity they're not going to get the gasoline. people are running their houses on generators and the generators will run out of fuel soon. i was talking to one guy he was talking about siphoning gas out of his car and happy he refilled it before the weekend so he could run the generator to keep his house going. it's a big mess. >> gordon you're here from the nyse, talking about more travel restrictions in and out of new york. how is that going to impact trading volume and liquidity for the rest of the week in your view? >> it may have impact. if people are going to trade, they're going to trade, and if they're not, they're not. the first day of a new month automatically means less volume than today. you saw the people marking their positions. yeah i think traveling will be difficult but it will start to pick up november 1st or 2nd we'll be light days for us anyway. >> bob you've been tracking some stocks on the move. what have you been looking at closely,
, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president and what governor christie is talking about. you know, this is the kind of politics that independent voters, moderates, the gettable, undecided -- >> that tiny number. >> that's what they want to see. they want to see a system that works. and when you have frankly, someone who is brash and outspoken and conservative, working with a president who's supposed to be polarizing, christie and obama working together with a single focus, i think it actually encourages people about politics, about government, and about these two individuals. because it does take leaders, it does take individuals, full credit to the two men involved. >> indeed. i would say a hearty amen to that. eugene, the president has been pretty evenhanded in the way he's responded to this storm. he tells fema, no bureaucracy, no red tape. he tells the governors
in the swing state of colorado. she spoke to a local businessman about -- businesswoman about the issues. >> how have the last four years been for you? >> it has been stressful. it has been a blessing, obviously. >> would you have liked more help as a small-business owner? gregg's absolutely. when the economy tanks, -- >> absolutely. ed, thingsconomy tanks got tight. i build this business. my plan was not helped by the economic situation. >> you are trying to encourage every business owner to employ just one extra person. >> jefferson county has an initiative, just add one. it is for stakeholders like myself, business owners, and we come together and say, let's put together a strategic plan to put people back to work. jefferson county has 20 douses bob businesses. our objective is that if we can get 5% of this area to hire one person, that is a lot of jobs. i think we have a certain group of folks that really understand how bad off we were when president obama took office. then we have the other based on emotion. and they have probably always voted for one party and probably always going
. they are slowly getting it back. if i take you over here, these are our friends we offer free charges, locals who, really, are stranded, they do not have a way to charge their devices so we had friends come in and out all day. a guy said a doorman charged 100 for a charge. that is the situation. it is a ghost down and it will return to a ghost town in a couple of hours when the sun goes down. some service the be back up tomorrow, and that 8 help things out and everyone who came to work today that works on the new york stock exchange, they drove down. that is important. there will be car pooling going on tomorrow and it is a dangerous situation. so, surprise to see we saw so many traders in the building showing new york resilience. >>neil: you have been going from dawn young lady and a great job. anyway, physically very get down there, this is the lower end of manhattan and a good chunk is underwater so you cannot get through the holland tunnel or queens midtown or through the brooklyn battery, the places where you access lower manhattan so you get a car that has to drop you off probably 15 or 20
. and more than 24,000 local bge homes and businesses are without power, most of them in anne arundel county. >>> a lot of you heading back to work and school today. the federal government and local jurisdictions will be open this morning as well as most schools in our area. however, in virginia manassas park schools are closed and two-hour delays in fauquier, frederick, and shenandoah counties. buses will use snow emergency routes in shenandoah. loudoun county has a one-hour delay. frederick county schools in maryland are on a two-hour delay. and in west virginia, pendleton county schools are closed, and berkeley, hampshire, and jefferson county schools are on a two-hour delays. several schools in virginia county and maryland as well as in the district that still don't have power. we expect an announcement from most of those school systems within the hour about whether the schools will be able to open today. >> let's take a live look at 5:02. just 43 degrees out there. a cold start to the morning. the rain has moved out. and we'll look at what the forecast looks like now. meteorologist tom
a couple of things i want the public tknow they can do. first of all, because, you know, our local law enforcement, our first responders are being swamped, to the extent that everybody can be out there looking out for their neighbors, especially older folks, i think that's really important. if you've got a neighbor nearby and not sure how they handle a power outage, flooding, et cetera, go over and visit them, knock on their door. make sure that they're doing okay. that can make a big difference. the public can be the eyes and ears in terms of identifying unmet needs. second thing. the reason we're here is because the red cross knows what it's doing when it comes to emergency response, and so for people all across the country who have not been affected, now is the time to show the kind of generosity that makes america the greatest nation on earth and a good place to express that generosity is by contributing to the red cross. obviously, you can go on their website. the red cross knows what they're doing. they're in close contact with federal, state and local officials. they will ma
to disrupt not just at the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is when it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business, advancing an idea you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architect of our own destiny, that there are key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if you do not address them, i do not think we can remain the most competitive country in the world. first, i think it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense when we educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up companies elsewhere. why are we not stapling right to their graduate application a visa or a green card? second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that that system is also broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, there w
? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend for yourselves, i'm going to make a buck off of it. he was asked about that numerous times today on the campaign trail. he just wouldn't answer. watch. >> cenk: well, that was wonderfully awkward. those are simple questions. answer the question. finally, how incompetent is your campaign? you didn't think they would ask you a question about fema today after you just said during the primaries you would get ri
is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. and the directive i have given-- and i said this yesterday but i will repeat and i think craig and others who are working with me right now know i mean it-- we are not going to tolerate red tape, we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. >> woodruff: meanwhile, republican mitt romney returned to the campaign trail today with three events in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're going through trauma in a major part of the country, a kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once. and... and it's interesting to see how people come togetr in a circumstance like this. we've seen folks from all over the country step forward and... and offer contributions. >> woodruff: bumps in the recovery were evident in new york city late today, where the public, bellevue hospital , started evacuating about 500 patients
's very important for the public to continue to monitor the situation in your local community, listen to your state and local officials, follow instructions. >> the president told officials to do whatever it takes to keep people safe and restore services. >> my instructions to the federal agency has been do not figure out why we can't do something. i want you to figure out how to do something. i want you to cut through red tape. >> nowhere is the power of sandy more apparent than in the coast of new jersey. atlantic city is under water. the boardwalk at seaside heights was obliterated. aerial footage shows miles and miles of destruction with no hope of salvaging lost property. the new jersey coastline has been completely changed. president obama arrives tomorrow. chris christie surveyed the damage from the air and then consoled storm victims on the ground. >> it's a very difficult day. very difficult day. >> the scope of this storm is absolutely stunning. aside from delivering high winds and driving rain, it was also dumping snow on areas of west virginia. the cleanup from sandy has j
. let us look at this post -- state a bit more. local a lot more. they should keep them and aligned with regard to protecting rights. protecting the american economy on a global scale. regulating commerce, and relate regulating big business for the protection of the people -- setting reasonable taxes for the welfare of the nation, protecting and maintaining, advancing the national infrastructure. generally acting as leaders. next up is sherry, watching us up in des moines, iowa. caller: i do agree with mitt romney. i think the government is getting way too big. host: next up is les in detroit. a democrat. you are on. caller: we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow a big state to come into a city to take over and take a financial manager or an emergency manager and. i guess they think the cities who have -- local government where they can come in and remove the city officials. like the mayor, city council. now, i do not think that is what the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. but what about the city's rights to
to continue to monitor the situation in your local community, listen to state and local officials. >> woodruff: the warning included especially pennsylvania where the rain kept falling and flood waters kept rising today. and where the storm already passed, clean-up was the order of the day with first light utility crews from across the country began working to restore power to millions of people. >> we're really lucky to have, you know, everybody safe and have the crews already here getting us fixed up. >> woodruff: in parts of appalachia, the problem was snow. the hurricane dumped up to a foot of it after merging with a cold front catching some people off guard. >> i wasn't ready for it either. woodruff: meanwhile in the midwest, the storm's power stretched all the way to chicago as waves crashed along the shores of lake michigan. the windy city also got gusts up to 60 miles an hour especially challenging for cyclists like this one. >> it's really tough going north. it's very usey going south. you don't even have to pedal. >> woodruff: those same conditions were feltarts of michigan and wisco
there with the local police chief and i can tell you, it was absolutely extraordinary, the amount of damage that was done by hurricane sandy, erin. you know, there's gas leaks there that have continued to be a problem. we've seen a stream of gas trucks go across the bridge onto those islands to try to shut off the gas. there was one particular area up there in the area of brick where about three or four football fields' worth of houses had been burnt to the ground by fire started by gas leaks so it's a big problem. you can smell it in the air. this was the first opportunity we've had to get over there with our cameras, we were among the first to do so, and there were houses literally in the middle of the street that had been picked up by the force of the ocean and dumped in the middle of the road, still intact. we saw sink holes, one of them had huge full size pickup truck up to its windows in this sink hole. the sand, the dunes used to be about 12 feet tall, if you like. they are now nothing. they have gone, and houses have been exposed, they've been toppled over. the force of the water ju
of the city. that was a message that was repeatedly stated. there's evidence of that in our local daily newspaper. there's evidence of that with some of the major network affiliates. there's video footage. the message has always been consistent. where the governor is getting his knowledge and his information, only god knows. >> mayor, i appreciate you coming on to discuss this situation. i know that you put the residents first, as is the governor at this time. we'll see what happens after this. >> i hope that journalistic integrity would prevail and someone would challenge the governor to provide the source of the information he got. he's dead wrong, plain and simple. >> thank you for your time. i appreciate it. >> you're welcome. >> the final jobs report is scheduled to be released friday, but will sandy delay that report? we'll have a live update from wall street. the storm forced some early voting sites to close in virginia, west virginia, and north carolina. is it possible election day could be affected by all of this? first, new comments from secretary of state hillary clinton in b
to that in a moment. first, across the mid-atlantic, state and local emergency teams are rushing to save people and to save their homes. sandy is living up to the warnings it would bring devastation never before seen in this region. a white capped rush of water took over the streets of ocean city, new jersey, after hurricane sandy made landfall at 8:00 last night. the governor is calling the damage there unprecedented. so far 29 people have died here in the united states. 29. and dozens of survivors today feared what would happen if rescuers had not shown up in time. >> we tried to stop it. we put towels down, we had the sandbags down. it was rushing in. it was rushing in from the windows, the doorways, everywhere. >> we lost everything. i came all the way from the top of the house. >> where were you at that time? >> downstairs trying to save them and i couldn't do anything about it. just kept on pouring in. it was coming all over the place, under the windows, from the sides. >> so many people in the storm's path have never experienced anything like this. we have more than 8 million people in t
not want to say that nothing has been done, because scott can tell this -- at the local level. the local watchdog is hurting around the country, but at the national level i do not know that a so much the case that we are not able to be vigilant anymore. i think vigilance is taking a different form. it is taking the form of more collaborative efforts, where people are working together to produce really in-depth stories that are hard hitting and take that watchdog role. it is happening in other mediums. a lot of documentary filmmaking is becoming investigative and there's more support and acknowledgment for that. if you look at the numbers over time, more newspapers do not exist, a lot of reporters have lost their jobs, that is true, you cannot deny it, but i went to the investigative reporting conference this year and there were 1500 people there, one of the largest turnouts ever. people are still doing work, doing it in different ways. the money is always hard to come by. it may be harder, but we also have wider means of distribution. it is hard to say -- there is no clear cost-benefit a
